That's the main reason why I prefer mailing list. I don't have anything to do to get the messages, they all come to me. That's a big difference. I know I wouldn't monitor a web board as
closely as I am monitoring my email.

I agree with another poster (gopi?) that people don't trim replies enough. I've been starting to see messages with 2 or 3 replies in them, all with the Planet Newton footer. Eh, Victor,
maybe a topic to add to your weekly town crier message ;-)
